As part of our ‘Away Day Guide’ feature for the official website Bromley supporter Will Bains provides us with a fans insight for our trip to Chester this coming Saturday, 19th November.
We head back to the Welsh border this Saturday with the trip to Chester.
For anyone stopping off in the city centre who wants some lunch, I highly recommend The York Roast Co. on Bridge Street with its range of hot roast sandwiches (perfect food to accompany and pub visits). Speaking of pub visits, there are plenty to keep a fan occupied in the centre of Chester. Ye Olde Custom House Inn is centrally located, and the building itself even has its own Wikipedia page, like several other pub buildings in the city centre. Alternatives are The Watergates or The Old Boot Inn – the latter is a Sam Smith’s pub and both of these can also be found in the many historic buildings in the city.
For the more culturally-minded, the cathedral is well worth a visit and the city walls provide further historical perspective. That said, even without visiting these parts of the city specifically, even a walk around the centre of town is enough to appreciate just how old the city is.
Bromley’s supporters will be located in the West Stand – Turnstile 7. Admission is by cash at the turnstiles unless stated otherwise.
Disabled supporters are charged at the prices stipulated above. Carers, if required, are FOC.*
*Please purchase a ticket from the ticket office
Address: Chester FC, Bumper’s Lane, Chester CH1 4LT
By car: Stay on the M56 motorway and follow the signs for North Wales and Queensferry A494, stay on this road until you see the exit sign for Flint/Chester A548, exit here, and then follow the sign for Chester A548. Stay on this road heading towards Chester, after passing the Vauxhall Dealership on the left hand side, turn right at the next set of traffic lights, into Sovereign Way. Continue until you see the Stadium on the right hand side.
Car Parking: There is a large car park at the ground, with a nominal charge of £2 for entry.
By train: Direct services to Chester run from Euston and are operated by Virgin Trains. For anyone looking for cheap train tickets at this late stage, take a London Midland service from Euston to Crewe and then change there for a service to Chester (although this route is at least an hour longer than the fastest trains). The ground itself is a good couple of miles from the station so a taxi is likely to be your best bet to get there.
